Bullet for my Valentine

It takes a lot for me to call a band a favorite but to say the least Bullet for my Valentine have definitely hit the top shelf of limited bands.

Trying to find the words to describe BFMVs greatness has been somewhat difficult for me to do but after hearing their new song titled “Begging for Mercy” for the first time in my motor, traveling down a dual carriage way at 70MPH with my speakers shaking from the bass pedals (Moose) the only words that came out of my mouth were “this is f****** sick!”. Now I don’t usually use “sick” as an adjective but damn they’re good and if their new album is 1/10th as good as this song is, it’s going to be friggin’ awesome.

To hear their sick lyrics, vocals, pedaling and guitar solos that empower and embrace such awesomeness, keeping in par if not outperforming that of their first two albums was face melting. They have once again out done themselves.

Until around a year and a half ago I was all about the lyrics and vocals. In fact and I can honestly say this, hand on my heart, this was the case until I started listening to BFMV. They have completely changed my entire view on music and for that I have much thanks to give them but, on top of that, they have pleased my ears for countless amounts of hours, driven me to new levels of rocking and helped me appreciate the many good things that I have in my life. Cheers guys!

I’m going to leave this post with the lyrics of their new track, which can be downloaded from their site: BulletForMyValentine.com

Waking up with just one thing in mind,
Eyes sewn shut so tear them open wide.
I’m on the hunt, I’m on the prowl; I can almost taste you now.
I’m on your scent, I’ll track you down. I’m on you now.

Drain your blood, watch it pour.
Drain your blood, be no more.

Please forgive me, I don’t know what I’m doing.
Someone help me. Start begging for your mercy.
Please forgive me, I don’t know what I’m doing.
Someone help me. Start begging for your mercy.

Can you feel the pain, the smell of fear’s around you.
Do you wanna scream, let it out just know I can hear you.
I’m on the hunt, I’m on the prowl; I can almost taste you now.
I’m on your scent, I’ll track you down. I’m on you now.

Drain your blood, watch it pour.
Drain your blood, plea no more.

Please forgive me, I don’t know what I’m doing.
Someone help me. Start begging for your mercy.
Please forgive me, I don’t know what I’m doing.
Someone help me. Start begging for your mercy.

Drain your blood, watch it pour.
Drain your blood, be no more.

Please forgive me, I don’t know what I’m doing.
Someone help me. Start begging for your mercy.
Please forgive me, I don’t know what I’m doing.
Someone help me. Start begging for your mercy.

One person has spoken their mind!

  1. A small brown dog says:

    Regardless of taste conflicts, It always knocks me out to find someone so passionate about the music they are into.

    This popped into my head but I can’t remember where it is from (which is going to bug me all day) the quote is probably not correct but is basically:

    Musics chosen words transcend the meaning
    Love music, war music, we move to it all.
